good morning. it is thursday, september 27, 2012. welcome to cbs "this morning." the nfl makes a late night deal to bring real referees back on the field. >> republicans tell mitt romney to be more aggressive. we'll ask senator john mccain what romney should be doing. >> the turbulence continues at american now that the airline is threatening to take its pilots to court to put an end to all those flight cancellations. >> we begin this morning with a look at today's eye opener. your world in 90 seconds. standing ovations. league reaches a deal wednesday night with the association.

jimmy hoffa. >> a man has been arrested after posting this video showing a teenager aiming a rocket launcher. >> check this out. you can now navigate your way under water. >> do you mind if i ask you a lot of dumb american questions? >> fire away. >> that's why we say do this. >> i love polling. i love polish people. i like it. >> all that matters >> in what was his last interview, mahmoud ahmadinejad called for a new world order not dominated by western power on cbs "this morning." >> everybody who walked by there got a mad bobble head doll. >> a collector's item. welcome to cbs "this morning." national football league officials are going back to work after three weeks of outrage
7:03 am
over the replacement referees the nfl and regular refs agreed on a tentative contract. >> the lockout comes to an end tonight. jeff glor has how things unfolded. >> monday night football was the final impetus. the regular refs will be on the fielding for tonight's game. after three weeks of agonizing officiating, it got worse not better. monday night's mess in seattle, it's over. in the end it was two days of marathon sessions between negotiators for the referees union and the league including commissioner roger goodell and a federal mediator. the nfl tweeted late wednesday night the deal was done. >> after week one when there was no incidents they thought they would be able to squeak by.
7:04 am
in the last couple of days you see this has been the dominant issue of the sport. >> the two sides were able to hash out a few key differences. on retirement benefits the agreement maintains the pension plan for current referees through 2016. or 20 years of service while transitioning new hires to 401(k) style plans. earlier wednesday there was an agreement on the league's demand for alternate referees available on stand by in order to potentially bench current referees for poor performance. the agreement creates a stable of refs for training only not for subbing out. the average salary increases from 49,000 now to 17000 next season topping out at 205,000 on average in 2019. >> it was a labor negotiation. neither side is completely pure. the nfl is a league that knows its pr. it understands when it starts to
7:05 am
lose the battle. >> the deal must be ratified by the refs but that's expected to be a formality. it should be noted what the referees got does not appear to were asking for just recently y leading some to wonder why wasn't this avoided? this extended delay? the answer some owners were especially dug in. that position became far less tenable especially after monday. charlie, norah. >> thank you. with us now, lynn zinser, a sports columnist for the "new york times" and james brown, host of the nfl today on cbs. is this a deal in which one event pushed the nfl to make a deal they weren't prepared to make early? >> absolutely. certainly the ending of monday night' game was the pivotal point in getting this done, but it was really only the tipping point. what had happened was a blown
7:06 am
call aside, the rethe placement refs had lost control of the games. players weren't respecting them. they were trying to get away with all kinds of things. it's like kids with a substitute teacher. it was spiraling out of control before monday night's game. that was the last straw. with everybody coming out agait the situation, they just couldn't go through this for one more weekend. >> james, j.b., can you hear me? >> yes, i can. >> what can you add to the deal? >> i love the way lynn characterized it. she's correct. look, charlie, especially on the point in terms of game administration, maintaining control. there was way too much chipiness out on the field. look, your got a field full of gladiators. the officials couldn't maintain control this thing could have got engrossly out of hand soon. >> how did they misjudge sort of these referees, these
7:07 am
replacement referees so badly? >> you know, norah i have to believe that the league approached this with a great amount of trepidation even at the beginning. if you've ever seen a nfl rule book it's like getting a ph.d.. there's no way to get those officiating at the lower level, please there's no way in the world they could have displayed the kind of competency out there on the field. >> what we're looking at nfl owners pressuring roger goodell to get this done before thursday night because our brand is being eroded. >> i think most of all the fans, kind of the whole nfl community pressure to get this done. this was like the perfect storm of people coming together and say this just can't happen any more. so, certainly the owners were going to feel it. but everybody was feel it. when does the entire kind of nfl media rally around one point so strongly. it just doesn't happen.
7:08 am
especially against a league, you know, who everybody loves the nfl and is such a popular league and to have everything roaring in one direction against them. >> here's tinting idea. this may very well make the refs, clearly make mistakes in the future but make the refs more part of the nfl community. you have owners, you have fans, you have players and now the refs, there's an appreciation of what they bring. j.b.? >> you know what, charlie, they always have been appreciated but make no mistake about it they are some of the most competent officials in any sport globally. however while the fans may well greet them with a stand ovation later tonight the players and coaches will be glad to have them back, somewhere in the first quarter, with the first blown call, they will be booed and this is an oxymoron but lovingly booed as well. >> lovingly booed. >> lynn, thank you. j.b., thank you. >> thank you, charlie, norah. >> the race for the white house
7:09 am
shifts to virginia. president obama and governor mitt romney will be there. recent polls in virginia shows the president with a slight edge but in two of the battleground states ohio and florida the latest cbs news poll shows romney falling behind. as jan crawford reports some republicans are calling for their candidate to pick up the pace. jan? >> reporter: good morning. that's right. conservatives are really starting to get anxious when they look at some of those polls that i didn't pick up any of that. i did an interview with romney. he was measured. even skipped several chances to land some blows. he said look i'm going to stay on course, keep the message. he had some harsh words for the president but said i'm not going play that game. >> this is a campaign not about character assassination, even though i think that's what's come from the obama camp by and large. >> character assassination. has the obama. campaign engaged in character assassination. >> sure. they completely misrepresent my point of view as well as the
7:10 am
reason why i'm in the race. the american people are interested in who will make their life better. >> reporter: romney supporters are imploring him to be more aggressive. >> we hear this more and more from your conservative supporters be more aggressive. >> reporter: i'll be who i am and describe why i am the person that will become the next president of the united states and how my policies will make life better for american families. >> romney has had trouble getting that message across. the obama campaign is far out spending him in advertising in swing states. and the media conservatives say is biassed against him. in our interview romney declined to take what would be an easy shot for any republican politician. >> do you think the mainstream media is in the tank for president obama? >> we have a system of free press. people are able to provide their own perspectives based on their own beliefs. there's some people more in my camp, some people more in his camp. i don't worry about that. >> reporter: campaigning wednesday in ohio, president
7:11 am
obama had no trouble being critical of his opponent even converting a verbal misstep into an attack on romney. >> i want to see us export more jobs. export more products. excuse me. [ laughter ] i was -- i was channelling my opponent there for a second. [ laughter ] >> reporter: now the president is out with another new ad today and it looks almost like he's trying to one up romney. remember romney really said yesterday where he's talking directly to voters, making his case. today president's new ad very similar format. >> jan crawford, thank you. there's a new controversy this morning over the attack on the american consulate in benghazi libya. on wednesday, secretary of state hillary clinton seemed to suggest for the first time that al qaeda was behind the attacks that killed the american ambassador to libya but this morning the state department is saying hold on. margaret brennan is here with us. this is an example where the
7:12 am
state department does not like the story that's on the front page of the papers today. >> she do not. the secretary gave a speech about mali. two references to al qaeda. because of that the "new york times" wrote this story saying she is linking the two. senior aides to secretary of state say she absolutely does not have the evidence to assert that link right now. remember the fbi has to make this determination. they are still not in benghazi. state department will say, those that al qaeda and aqim is active in the region. there's arms coming from mali into libya and this is one of the countries where you have a new government that isn't in fully control of security in the area. >> they don't have the evidence, they are waiting for the fbi to investigate. do they have anything to suggest there might be a link? >> they don't say that they have evidence either way. what they do and talk about is one of the extremist groups in
7:13 am
the are a, who is believed to be behind this but still don't have the evidence to assert that at this point may have some relationship with al qaeda. they just can't say either way. >> with us now arizona senator john mccain. senator, pleasure to have you here. before we talk politic, let me ask you this question. you knew the ambassador. admired the ambassador. what do you worry about here in the fact that there seems to be an inability to find out what happened, whether it's spontaneous or was there some plan? >> well to start with, charlie, i mean it was just unbelievable that secretary rice, excuse me, ambassador rice and secretary
7:14 am
clinton and white house spokesman and others would say that there was no evidence -- that this was a spontaneous attack, yet they say come on honey bring your mortars we're going to a spontaneous demonstration. it was obvious, it was obvious that this was a planned attack that they carried heavy weapons, mortars, rpgs, and clearly it was not a demonstration, nor was it a result of a hateful video. >> if it was obvious why doesn't the administration say that? >> i don't know. some allege maybe it's because they are trying to convey to the american people that al qaeda is no longer a threat, but when osama bin laden left that that was the case. but the reality is that al qaeda is well, and thriving in some places, including iraq, including in syria where there's more and more those kinds of people coming in, including
7:15 am
other parts of the middle east. and it's just disgraceful that we would say that an attack such as this was the result of a demonstration. >> disgraceful is a strong word to be used. you've never shied away from that. how can you say you know? >> how can you say when there's an attack with mortars, with heavy weapons, indirect and direct -- anybody who understands warfare, anybody who has the fundamental understanding of warfare knows that that's not a spontaneous demonstration. that's now, norah. >> as you know libya -- what susan rice said on a number of shows over the weekend which you have criticized -- i read this morning. >> i was on after her. she said they had no evidence that it was not a spontaneous demonstration. how could you say that when mortars indirect, direct fire
7:16 am
and heavy weapons are being used at this is as a result of a spontaneous demonstration? also incredible to blame it on a video. it's not the video. its the islamist using the video. >> do you believe that al qaeda is behind the attack. >> i think that this was an orchestrated attack. clearly the organization that was heavily involved is involved with extremist organizations. and so i can't say exactly but it's clear that there's a connection between these people and to say that it was a spontaneous demonstration is really beyond belief. it shows a fundamental pwarfare but of what's going on in that part of the world. >> you raise the issue how do you make these embassies more secure. we have to turn to politics. >> could i say its the obligation of the host country but our obligation to assess that security and clearly from
7:17 am
his diaries that chris stevens was deeply concerned about that. >> one of the interesting aspects of the u.n. session going on now is they are looking into al qaeda's influence in mali. they are concerned about it here. politics. >> politics. >> you've been there. >> you had to bring that up. >> 2008. does the romney campaign, is it in trouble? does it need to do something different than it's doing? >> well, i think it's obvious that there's ups and downs in these campaigns. obviously time marches on. we're looking forward to the debates, as you know and there have been difficulties and you have to give the president credit for the campaign they are running, which is by the way the most vicious that i have ever observed as far as their attacks on mitt romney are concerned.
7:18 am
but politics isn't a bean bag. i think we'll keep moving one foot ahead of the other. i would be talking about this failed foreign policy whether in iraq where it's disintegrating, in afghanistan where we can no longer train and equip afghan soldiers, whether in iran where our biggest problem seems to be between the united states and israel not between israel and the united states. >> you think he should spend more time talking about foreign policy than about the economy and jobs? >> i think he should do both, particularly in light of the tragic death of ambassador stevens. >> good to have you here. thank you senator. >> thanks for mafg me on. >> we want to turn to some of the headlines from some of the newspapers. the "financial times" reports on the financial crisis in spain. today the spanish government announces budget cutbacks. on wednesday there were protests outside of the spanish parliament for a second day in a row. political turmoil is causing spanish stocks to nose dive. britain's guardian reports
7:19 am
on massive new demonstrations in greece. protesters had violent confrontations with police. there's new wage and pension cuts. the greek finance minister said the government has agreed on an austerity budget for next year. >> "usa today" finds income is growing much faster in republican leaning red states. personal income in those 23 states has risen 4.6% since the recession began five years ago. democratic leaning blue states income is up only half of 1%. >> the "wall street journal" reports two big companies are overhauling worker health benefits. sears and garden restaurants are giving employees a fixed sum of money and allowing home to choose their medical coverage from an online market lays. they say it will give workers more control over health

their union to court. >> that threat came in a letter sent just a few hours after the pilots union agreed to resume contract talks. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. dallas-ft. worth international airport is headquarters for american airlines. this morning the threat of legal action against the pilots union could stall negotiations. turbulent would be a good way to describe the past few weeks for american airlines. this month's on time arrivals have dropped below 60%, down from the carriers monthly average of 82%. and since september 16th, the airline has cancelled more than 700 flights. passengers like harry roberson whose outgoing flight was cancelled last week are
7:32 am
concerned. >> we need to look at another airline. >> reporter: the airline say the hiccups are due to pilots calling in sick and there's a spike in maintenance work orders by pilots. however american says it's all part of a work action sparked by labor problems. >> there's absolutely no job action that is being orchestrated or sanctioned or being led by the pilots union. >> reporter: last month a bankruptcy court seeking to trim labor costs by $1 billion gave the airline permission to throw out an existing contract with its pilots. this after the union refused to give concessions on a new contract. >> bankruptcy allows the corporation to extort concessions. >> reporter: last week pilots took to the pickett lines. while pilots and american are in a stalemate, flight attendants and mick anybody unions have come to terms with the airline. those two unions have very little confidence in the company.
7:33 am
>> obviously there was very poor decision-making. i don't believe american can survive this. >> reporter: if and when the parties go back to the table remains to be seen. american airlines says it will emerge from bankruptcy protection with or without a renegotiated pilots contract. charlie and norah. >> they'd of the pilots union told american pilots this week please conduct yourselves as the professionals that you are. bruce hicks joins us now at dfw airport. good morning. is your airline losing credibility so that people should ask themselves should i be flying american? >> charlie, first i want to say to our customers that we sincerely apologize for all of the disruptions and that they've been through over the past two weeks. this is not the way american airlines runs an airline. for our customers we had more than an 80 year history of our customers having confidence in us and continue to have
7:34 am
confidence in us. these issues will not continue. they cannot continue. they are unacceptable and we understand that our customers are upset. they should be. >> bruce, i mean you know we've got 701 flights cancelled since september 16th. on time performance at 58%. i know you're apologizing to customers but people are busy, they are going to say and think twice about flying american. what do you do in in? >> we have reached out to the pilots union yesterday and asked them in electronic terms to help put a top some of the actions by some of our pilots. some not all. if that's not successful, if the operation is not running smoothly we've left no recourse but to seek injunktive relief. >> you're threatening legal action. your blaming the pilots for the problem >> there's no question that some
7:35 am
of our pilots are doing things that are disruptive to our operation or harmful to our customers and in fact, on all the employees of the company but most importantly to our customers. we can't sustain this. we can't allow this to continue. we won't allow to it continue. >> what are the pilots doing? >> well there's any number of things. most of them are the maintenance write ups at the last minute oftentimes just as the door close. different things that create delays. some of the delays are caused by insignificant things like broken coffee pots or broken passenger reading lights or torn seat pockets. we've had a huge increase in the number of complaints within the cockpit things like the lights not bright enough. those are up more than twice. complaints about cockpit wind shields -- yes ma'am. >> the union, the pilots union insists there's no job action being orchestrated or sanctioned by the union but it's also worth noting that the pilots have been working without a contract since
7:36 am
2003. should there be a contract with the pilots? there's a failure to come to an agreement that toledo this pain forcustomers. >> american has been committed to having consensual agreements with all of our labor groups. has always done that. >> but nine years is a long time. >> we have in fact contracts recently reached with our flight attendants union and transport union workers. we have a tentative agreement with the board of directors of the pilots union. unfortunately it didn't ratify. but it was an agreement that, in fact, that would provide the company the cost savings necessary for successful restructuring and provide our pilots with a solid agreement going forward. but that didn't ratify. >> suppose there's a merger between u.s. air and american what impact would that have? >> well, i can tell you that american is taking a careful look at strategic alternatives
7:37 am
to our tanned alone plan. we've signed nondisclosure agreements with several organizations including u.s. airways. but we're not going to talk about the specifics of those at this point. >> bruce hicks, thank you very much. it was the greatest moment of his life and the worst. adam greenberg faced only one pitch in the big league. we'll show you how he's going after a second chance right here on cbs "this morning". i've been a superintendent for 30 some years at many different park service units across the united states. the only time i've ever had a break is when i was on maternity leave. i have retired from doing this one thing that i loved.
